A grandfather was walking through his yard when he heard his granddaughter repeating the alphabet in a tone of voice that sounded like a prayer. He asked her what she was doing. The little girl explained, “I’m praying, but I can’t think of exactly the right words, so I’m just saying all the letters, and God will put them together for me because He knows what I’m thinking.”

Psalm 139:4   Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.

Romans 8:26   In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

Lord, You know my heart prayer for Ryan. Please make up for what I lack. Amen

Ryan started the day sneezing a lot (for about 2 1/2 hours), but was cool, calm and collected for the remainder. Janine and I stopped in to see him just now, after having returned home from spending the afternoon with my family, and he greeted us with the biggest smile ever…

I wasn’t able to grab my phone camera fast enough to capture the moment, but was able to find this photo on-line which looks fairly similar…

Ryan’s looking more and more like his dad each day…

Let’s end the work week with some funnies!

And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found on all corners of the world. Then he made the earth round…and laughed and laughed and laughed and…

Healthy Eating #36   I buy fresh vegetables every day. I feed them to my pig and he converts them into bacon.

My girlfriend dumped me, so I stole her wheelchair. Guess who came crawling back?

Two blondes walk into a building. You’d think one of them would’ve seen it.

I went down to the paint store to get thinner. It didn’t work.

Happy Friday Everyone! We hope and pray y’all have a fantastic weekend on and with purpose!

Occasionally, while scrolling through FB, tucked few and far in-between the politics/backstabbing/sob-stories/cat & food pics/and like garbage, there are some precious gold nuggets that motivate me to want to be a better human being…and, fortunate enough for me, worded in the simplest of ways. Here are a couple of those nuggets.

“When you see something beautiful in someone, tell them. It may take a second to say, but for them it could last a lifetime.”

“Forgive others as quickly as you expect God to forgive you.”

Two is enough for today. I don’t think my brain can handle anymore…

Ryan’s slowly, but surely, getting back to his old (actually young) self, but he still has allergy attacks for a few hours a couple times during the day. I’ve purchased some “plant-based” non-toxic cleaning supplies that will hopefully help. The first box of supplies came today, so I’ll be trying them out tomorrow. We’ll see…

Thank y’all for your continued love and support throughout this season…

Best one I saw today:

John 13:34   A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

1 John 3:18   Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

1 John 4:12-13    No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit.

Ephesians 4:2-3   Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

These verses apply worldwide…

Welcome to palindrome week; which, by the way, won’t happen again until February of 2022…That is, if my math is correct…

So, enjoy this week while you can, but make sure you enjoy each moment of each day…as you always should.

Thank you to all those who have suggested remedies to fix Ryan’s allergies (or whatever it is). I will definitely try them. Something’s got to work. Please Lord!

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 9/9/19

Was so tired yesterday, I don’t remember going to bed last night. Only know that I woke up in it too early this morning. Lord, Please give me energy to enjoy another one of your beautiful days!

Ryan’s still battling an allergy or something. The constant drooling, sneezing, etc. is constant whenever he’s awake. Benadryl seems to be the only thing that helps, but I really hate to continue giving it to him. Keeping the doors and windows closed. Constantly wiping down counters and dusting with a wet cloth. Air filters on 24/7. That’s all I can think of to do. There’s got to be something else that will do the trick. Any suggestions out there??

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 9/7/19

Save for a couple of hours in the early afternoon, Ryan had a good day…free of coughing/sneezing…free of Benadryl…Praise God! He actually got a lot of rest/sleep, which he’s needed. Let’s pray this continues into tomorrow and beyond…

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 9/6/19

Deuteronomy 31:8   The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Remember this whenever you feel you are wondering around in a fog; stressed about a decision, wondering if a certain tactic should be applied, etc. Fortunately, God has already taken the first step on your path, and therefore can lead you through whatever lies ahead. There is no better guide or companion for life’s journey than our all-knowing heavenly Father.

Dear Lord, Thank you for going ahead of me. Thank you also for being ever-present with me. With you having paved my way, I can walk in confidence, not fear. Help me be the absolute best caregiver (father) for Ryan. And please allow me to see progress in his prognosis…
